PTFE Suture Applications
PTFE sutures thanks to being completely non-absorbable and biologically inert, cause minimal inflammatory response in the moist environment of the oral cavity, that’s why they are an excellent choice for any:
- Bone grafting procedures
- Soft tissue grafting
- Guided tissue regeneration
- Implant surgery
- Periodontal surgery
- Ridge augmentation
About Omnia PTFE Sutures
PTFE Suture, is a non-resorbable PTFE Monofilament Suture, is manufactured from pure, 100% polytetrafluoroethylene, and is designed specifically for oral surgery.
PTFE is a unique biomaterial in that it is inert and chemically non-reactive. In addition, the monofilament construction prevents bacterial wicking which is associated with braided sutures. Therefore, Omnia PTFE sutures are ideal for any implant, periodontal and bone graft surgery where the usage of a monofilament suture with low bacterial adhesion is recommended.
Unlike other synthetic monofilament sutures, such as nylon, the material is supple and well tolerated in the mouth. The handling, knot-tying, and knot-holding characteristics of our PTFE suture are excellent as well.
Further, PTFE sutures are ideal to limit inflammation, bleeding and other collateral effects which may occur during the soft tissue approximation.
HS Sharp Tip, Reverse Cutting Needles
The HS needle is also known as “triangular” or “reverse cutting” needle, since it has cutting edges on the sides and outer curve. Due to its cutting edges, this needle easily penetrates tissues and is suitable for almost all uses. It provides and excellent penetration capacity and great solidity.
